New TV drama set against backdrop of the Manhattan Project to begin production in New Mexico

SANTA FE, N.M. - A new television series set against the backdrop of the U.S. government's effort to develop the world's first atomic bomb will begin production in New Mexico later this month.

Gov. Susana Martinez announced the filming of the drama "Manhattan" at a news conference Wednesday. She says she's excited that the series will highlight New Mexico's history and its picturesque landscapes.

Martinez says the choice of the producers to work in New Mexico demonstrates that the state remains competitive in attracting movies and TV projects.

"Manhattan" will follow a group of scientists and their families as they attempt to navigate a world of secrets and lies. It's set to premiere on WGN America in July.

The drama is expected to employ about 200 local crew members and thousands of resident actors and background talent over the course of 13 episodes.
